Annual Book Day at The Grange 25 JuneListed on May 23, 2016 in Blogs!, Crafts & Textiles
The Grange Ellesmere specialises in courses relating to the traditional skills of making a book – bookbinding, letterpress printing, paper marbling and illustration. This year it is holding its 5th Annual Book Day – a great day for anyone interested in books and how they were, and are still made. For people already involved in any of these skill areas they will be able to browse the stands of some of the top specialist suppliers in the country of equipment, paper and board. For those new to the area, or just interested in seeing what goes on, there will be ongoing demonstrations of each of the skill areas, taking place in our bindery and print workshop, as well as some wonderful displays of illustration by some well known and up and coming artists. Visitors will also have the chance to see the beautiful gardens of the Grange and to have tea in our conservatory. Admission is free and the day could be combined with a visit to the pretty town of Ellesmere and its mere (lake).
